As usual, when there is a story about the corruption in the Illinois justice system, comments are closed on the article. I don't blame the guy one bit for filing a lawsuit. Too often, the police, investigators and prosecutors fabricate or withhold evidence or outright lie to close a case. those people should have to go do his time in supermax. The record should also show what they did so the other inmates know about it. The following quote from the article sickens me:
"Lawyers from the appellate prosecutor's office in Springfield were not available for comment. Given the liability the state faces in a potential wrongful-conviction lawsuit, it's unlikely the state will acknowledge that Davis is actually innocent of the crime".
That is the typical thinking in this state. Money before all else. If I were on a jury, I would give him a million a year for the time he served. Then, after seeing this quote, I would triple the award. The people are close to rising up. When they do, it will start in Illinois.
